Variable Shims

Variable shims consist of two types of shims known as lengthening and shortening shims. These shims are used to increase or decrease the effective length of shoulder bolts, or stripper bolts, in punch and die assemblies such as those that produces washers from flat strips of metal. The ability to change the effective length reduces costs in shortening shafts or bolts to required lengths.
